How often are meters read and how are they read?
Meters are read at the end of each month. Each meter has a fast pulse on it that transmits the reading via radio signal to our meter reading device. If a reading seems off, the meter lid is lifted and manually read to confirm.
If you have a fire hydrant meter, you will need to call in the read monthly (call our office for more info).
How can I keep my bills from getting too high in the Summer?
